(PRWEB UK) 25 June 2011
After a decade of discussion the .xxx Domain Name TLD is finally here and is available for pre-registration from UK2.net. There has been much talk about the .xxx TLD over the last 11 years with some concerns over how it will be regulated. While the ICM Registry looks after the running and management of the .xxx domain, IFFOR oversee the regulation. IFFOR is the International Foundation for Online Responsibility and they are also responsible for developing and implementing a set of compulsory best practices to effectively self-regulate the adult entertainment industry.
As a leading web host and domain name registrar, UK2.net are one of the first hosting companies in the UK to offer pre-registration for the .xxx domain name. They achieved a high success rate for the .co pre-registration in 2010 and achieved an overall 79% success rate of all attempted registrations. They hope to build on that success with this launch and are aiming to increase their overall completed registrations, of new TLD’s, past the 80% mark.
Whatever your business, adult or not, you need to be aware of the .xxx registration phases as they can have a direct affect on your business. There are 3 different phases for registration and all Adult Trademarks and domain name owners need to apply for their relevant domains in the adult industry. Normal businesses will also need to apply to the .xxx registrar to block incorrect use of their Trademark or brand name with a .xxx extension.
The .xxx extension has been well publicised over the last few years and UK2 have gone to great lengths to ensure complete transparency in this well documented offering.
